THE YELLING Yes, there’s a fair amount of strain on the vocal chords here. There’s also liberal use of Bonham-style kick-drumming and searing guitar work. Formed by Nathanial Cox and Robert Davis, remnants of Revis who disbanded after releasing a record on Epic, the Yelling sound like an apologetic for the return of rock. They’ve done their blues homework, grown out their ‘fros and seemingly harnessed the forces of nature to unleash a sonic fury comparable to a thunderstorm over a volcano during an earthquake. Sort of like a less blatantly derivative Wolfmother.
